Etna covers an area of 1,190 km (459 sq mi) with a basal circumference of 140 km (87 mi).
This makes it by far the largest of the three active volcanoes in Italy, being about two and a half times the height of the next largest, Mount Vesuvius.
Off the southern coast of Sicily, the underwater volcano of Ferdinandea, which is part of the larger Empedocles volcano, last erupted in 1831.
It is located between the coast of Agrigento and the island of Pantelleria (which itself is a dormant volcano).
Along the northern coast, the mountain ranges of Madonie, 2,000 m (6,600 ft), Nebrodi, 1,800 m (5,900 ft), and Peloritani, 1,300 m (4,300 ft), are an extension of the mainland Apennines.
The cone of Mount Etna dominates the eastern coast.Sicily and its surrounding small islands have some highly active volcanoes.Mount Etna is the largest active volcano in Europe and still casts black ash over the island with its ever-present eruptions.On the coasts, especially the south-western, the climate is affected by the African currents and summers can be scorching.Sicily is seen as an island of warm winters but also, above all along the Tyrrhenian coast and in the inland areas, winters can be cold, with typical continental climate.Its most prominent landmark is Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe, and one of the most active in the world, currently 3,329 m (10,922 ft) high. The earliest archaeological evidence of human activity on the island dates from as early as 12,000 BC.
